News and news

Firstly, I have some fantastic news - I've just confirmed my very first picture book deal!
Really exciting, it's a story called 'The Flyaway Blanket' to be published by Magination Press in America.  Looking forward to sinking my teeth into a juicy few months of character design, storyboarding and illustrating! It'll be lots of work but so worth it.

Other news!

You can now buy prints, laptop skins, ipad/iphone/ipod covers and canvases of my illustration work in my shop.

Norwegian Wood

This illustration is for the new film adaptation of the Haruki Murakami novel 'Norwegian Wood'.

Prints are available in my online shop

If you haven't heard of Murakami you should really have a read of some of his stuff, it's truly brilliant writing.

My design was selected as a finalist for the Don't Panic / Soda Pictures poster design competition. You can see it exhibited at the Curzon Cinema - Soho for the next few weeks!

Hi everyone! I've just released a couple of new illustrations.

The first was an entry to the Art of Nurture competition, inspired by the theme 'We succeed together'. I particularly like the little chap with the binoculars.

On the right, I painted this as a super-happy-bonus-prize for my 500th follower on Twitter.  @AllThingsEla is an avid reader and loves cherry-blossom trees (just like me) so I thought that this would be a great gift.

I have some good news too!
You'll be able to see my work in the upcoming Spring issue of Anorak Magazine, hurray!
I've wanted to work with Anorak for a long time, and I'm really excited to do so.

I hope you're all okay! Come and say hello sometime.
